“Aquarium”

Sometimes, in order to say in concise and succinct phrases about a particular group, its place in the musical horizon, and its role in the life of fans, you need to try to summarize all the many years of work of the team. Or you can just give the group members the opportunity to say their own creation. Boris Grebenshchikov called the Aquarium group a shining beast that brings people something that they lacked, which they themselves did not know about. In this one phrase, the whole secret of the popularity of “Aquarium” is revealed.

Looking for like-minded people

Since then, dozens of famous musicians from different countries have visited the band – Vsevolod Gakkel, Sergey Kurekhin, Oleg Sakmarov, Boris Rubekin, Alexander Lyapin, Dzhivan Gasparyan and Igor Butman. The history of the group can be divided into several stages. During these periods, not only the composition of the Aquarium participants changed, but also the corporate sound. Continue reading

MODERN TALKING – GERMAN PHENOMENON

Modern Talking is a cult band. Its members have earned such fame, because their songs are recognizable by the first chords and are pulled to the dance floor. More than 100 million records sold say a lot. No one was more successful at Eurodisc than the guys at Modern Talking.

Could Thomas Anders have thought during the studio recording of the song “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul” that this composition will fundamentally change his whole life. It was their first song and instant hit in the biggest hits.

Sweet beginning
In the early 1980s, the Eurodisc style only appeared, and with it the composer Dieter Bohlen. At that time he worked in a music publishing house and almost everything that sounded in Germany was written by him. Dieter’s voice was not outstanding, but his composing abilities quickly helped him to his feet. Bolen realized that for complete success, he lacked English-language compositions and a singer whose voice could make real hits out of his songs. Continue reading

MADONNA – THE QUEEN OF POP MUSIC

In musical culture, personalities of this magnitude rarely appear, the more valuable is their contribution to world history. Perhaps it sounds rather pathetic, but we were lucky to live at the same time with such people, because not everyone has the opportunity to touch the work of those who are recognized as cult during life. Undoubtedly, one of these favorites is the magnificent Madonna. Her merits are appreciated. The Guinness Book of Records marked her as the most commercially successful performer of all time, and the authoritative Time magazine included Madonna in the list of the most influential women of the last century. Journalists have long called her the queen of pop music, but the path to this title was not easy for the singer.

Early loss
Madonna was born into a multinational family on August 16, 1958 in one of the towns on the shore of Lake Huron. Singer Madonna The girl was traditionally named after her mother, Madonna Louise Ciccone, who had French-Canadian roots, and her father was Italian-American. Madonna’s mother died of cancer shortly after the birth of her sixth child, and the girl’s rejection of the fact that God allowed her mother to die was a turning point in her life and influenced the singer’s work. After a couple of years, the father married again, but the stepmother mainly cared for her own children. Continue reading
